Marine Biology for Elementary Educators

You know about landscapes and the wildlife that lives there. Now, learn about the other 75% of the world -- the seascape and the marine life that calls it home.

(6 weeks online learning + 1 project week)

The ocean covers 75% of the earth’s surface and yet the animals that live here remain unfamiliar to most of us. This course will submerse you in the biology of aquatic animals. You will increase your knowledge about marine biology and be able to build a connection between your students and the oceans while covering topics core to elementary education. This course combines interactive activities, stories, literacy and math teaching with learning about sea creatures. Participants will receive an electronic version of Elly Jelly Looks at Marine Animals student book and teacher’s guide “Elly Jelly’s Surprise”.
